In the end, only three things matter:
how much you loved, how gently you lived,
and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.

after patience, a beautiful thing awaits.
Your radiance shines
in every atom of creation

Tell people about your religion without the use of your tongue
Imam Jaffar Alsadiq (a.s.)
‘But luxury has never appealed to me, I like simple things, books, being alone, or with somebody who understands.’
How can I not love an eye that sees me beautiful in all my states?
